KAMIL RAHMAN-BLAKE

Director of Campaigns

Providing the springboard of campaigns, and one of our original founding members, Kamil ensures that our ideas are heard and international youth issues brought to the forefront. If our generation is to be heard, we need to turn dispersed voices across the country into concentrated campaigning. Through polling, focus groups and conversations with Youth-UNAs, his campaigns team aggregates opinion and distributes our efforts accordingly, campaigning for the issues that Youth UNAs find most important - whether that be climate change, antimicrobial resistance, vaccinations or one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals - the campaigns department will works to ensure those issues are part of the Youth Platform's agenda. 


This also includes liaising with leaders and organisations in various fields to ensure they understand how important their area is to Youth UNA Representatives today, engaging with the UN75 campaign, putting young people at the heart of the conversation.


Kamil's team recognises that the problems facing humanity today should be met with creative solutions fit for the generations of tomorrow. This reflects the ambition of our generation, with a will to make tomorrow better than today, to leave the world in a safer, more secure place than when we found it. It will be a challenge, but we endeavour to realise that ambition.

Background:

When he's not campaigning, Kamil studies Politics and International Relations at the University of Sheffield. He is also the Secretary-General of Sheffield UNA, working alongside the President to steady the ship. As a youth activist, he understands the importance of one’s voice being heard, and the UNA-YP is an ambitious step toward achieving that.
